High Environmental Value (HVE)

Four performance levels

The classification in High Environmental Value (HVE) is an official certification supervised by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food. It follows a voluntary approach by winegrowers and wine estates. When it is awarded, it testifies to an effective commitment to environmental performance. This is measured at several levels:

  • contribution to the biodiversity of the vineyard;
  • reasoned intervention in phytosanitary treatments;
  • rational control of fertilization;
  • economical management of water resources.

Two logos

Two logos distinguish the certified domains:

The logo " High Environmental Value (French Environmental Label) »Identifies the farms themselves when they are involved globally and at all levels of production in the process.

The mention the reference " From an operation of High Environmental Value »Identifies raw or processed products from certified High Environmental Value (HVE) farms.
